We got to this place by boat and saw sea lions, cormorants and the iconic lighthouse on the way. The place itself was interesting and charming and the restaurant serves good food. The penguin tour was fantastic - worth every minute and penny to watch...More
Having read Uttermost Part of the Earth by Lucas Bridges, I have wanted to go to Estancia Harberton for YEARS. We hired a car and driver from the Arakur Hotel. Lovely drive through the mountains. We had a terrific tour of the property with one...More
My main reason to being at Estancia Harberton was it was the only way to get to the island to walk with the penguins. Initially I thought it was just a 'tourist spot' but after a few minutes of hearing the naturalist / scientist speak...More
Estancia Harberton is located on the shores of Beagle Channel 90km (55 miles) from Ushuaia. It was founded by the Bridges family in 1886 as the first sheep ranch in Tierra del Fuego. Harberton has been open to the public as a working nature reserve...More
This is the launching point for our tour of the penguins and the islands along the Beagle Channel. We also had lunch and although the meal was simple, it was very good comfort food. There is a small museum on the premises and many whale...More

When we went in January 2015 we did so with Pira Tour, the only ones authorized to land at the pinguinera. We paid about AR$2600, which came out to about $100pp based on the exchange we paid at the time. There are other companies that do a Beagle Channel cruise that stop at the penguin colony, but you cannot go ashore, so you are limited to seeing only those penguins that are on the beach or just behind it ... our best penguin sightings -- including lots of chicks -- were on the other side of the colony, where these boats don't go. So I would recommend going only with Pira Tour.
If you go on the Pira Tour, I think you would be cutting it very close to your return to the ship -- personally I wouldn't risk it (and we didn't when our ship stopped in Ushuaia ... we went when we returned to Ushuaia for four days after the cruise). That said, contact Pira Tour directly as they might have a special time for their tour on the days when cruise ships are in town.
